I heard you guys are the experts, so I come to seek your advice.
So the other day I got a weird error page on my computer while using Google chrome. It was a blue screen and it said something like It's Dead Jim with a sasd face and then the computer totally rebooted and did an update and proceeded to get slow. I did some research, ran a few scans in both safe mode and regular mode and nothing came up. It got to the point where the computer got so bad I could not so much of anything. So I did a system restore to when I knew it was clean and was able to do a bit more research. I have an Asus Eee netbook. They have a function that allows one to reboot using a partion back to factory settings. I do not have the recovery CDs with me and I am not sure it even came with them. The comp. has no CD drive, so I am not sure if they would do any good anyway. well after restoring factory settings, it was great. I scanned the computer with avast and spyware doc and it came up clean, I also scanned the USB drive that I used to backup my documents and it came up clean. All was good until today when I got the blue screen and the Jim thing again. So far the computer is running fine, but I do not think I am clean. Any info and help in restoring this issue would be greatly appreciated.
